On this Diwali, I would like you to meet Seema who is 9 years of age and would have never been able to go to school had it not been for Seva Mandir’s support. Belonging to a poor family, she has no choice but to spend her days grazing cattle in the field rather than being in school . Her father had always been against the idea of girls’ education. However, Seva Mandir took it upon itself to convince her father. Seema is now in government school after having completed 5th standard from one of Seva Mandir’s Shiksha Kendra.
“My father understood the importance of my education and now he also supports me in attending school and studying. I am ready to go through the struggle to become a teacher because I want to encourage other girls like me to study as well”. Seema says
3000 more like Seema are being helped to pursue their dreams and receive a high quality education. Thank you for helping shape the future of these girls.
On Behalf of SM , I would like to thank you for being a part of Seema’s transformation and for your trust in Seva Mandir.

“I remember working on the fields with my father; the school was so far that I could hardly ever attend it. But now I go to the school every day. I enjoy reading my books especially the stories.” This is Madhav’s experience who is a student of our Non Formal Education Center.
Like Madhav you have touched upon the lives of hundreds of children who have been deprived of education. You bring the light of education to the lives of children in hamlets of southern Rajasthan. And your support is much needed in their lives. From your donations we have been able to provide books, stationary and other infrastructure to support education. But a lot more is needed.
Wondering how you can help us?
Global Giving is having its little by little match making challenge from the dawn of 26th October 2015. Every contribution made by you exceeding £50 will be partly matched by Global Giving Family and together the amount will go to ease the access of education to children.
We look forward to your benevolent gesture in making a dream come true. For any query, feel free to write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
While Nelson Mandela once said, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world”, it remains a disturbing fact that still one out of three children in southern Rajasthan is deprived of education.
In this context, Seva Mandir is running 170 centers across 600 neglected villages in Southern Rajasthan providing access to education to around 6000 children every year. “I want to study Science and know more about Biology. I want to be a doctor. I will do everything to become one.” Aspires a boy from one of our Non Formal Education Centers. Such aspirations can only be fulfilled with your support.
Wondering how can you help us? GlobalGiving has come up with this innovative idea of matching donations. From Monday, September 21st through Friday, September 25th, GlobalGiving will be offering a one-time 100% match on all new recurring donations up to $200 per donor!

Amidst the Aravalli mountain ranges some 25 Kilometers from Udaipur is a little hamlet called Badanga. Here, Seva Mandir runs a Siksha Kendra (Non Formal Education Center) for the children to ease the access of education in the remote hilly terrain. Pushpa, a lady in her late twenties run the center.
Pushpa’s NFE is not just about fun and learning but also about values and of humanity. It so happened that on the dawn on 25th July, two of her students was bit by venomous snake at their residence, while both were asleep. Dharma, the elder of the two died instantaneously, Khyali was in a state of comma for nine days followed by pneumonia. His treatment in the nearby private hospital was a costly affair.
Seeing the financial difficulties that the family was facing, the NFE students collected whatever little they had from their piggy bank and handed a total of Rs. 400 to Pushpa.
Pushpa further contributed Rs. 500 from here salary for Khyali’s treatment. Each day, during the morning assembly, the children pray for Khyali’s health, and are looking forward for a day when he would join them again.
We at the Non Formal Education Centers do not believe that education is all about studying but also inculcating values that would make the world a better place. Seva Mandir is running 170 centers across 600 neglected villages providing access to education to around 6000 children every year.
It takes Time to imbibe those values and I am proud to say that it has been possible with your support that we are able to inculcate values besides educating through our centers
Also, I would take this opportunity to share with you that Bonus day is round the corner on 16th September from 9 AM EDT. The donations made on bonus day will be matched up to 30%. That means we would be able to expand further and hence would appeal to you to support us on 16th September.
We would love to hear from you on your side of thoughts and to know why supporting these poor kids is so close to your heart? , please do reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for joining hands with us! I am sure we can really make a difference in these children’s lives by providing them a bright future through quality education.
Seva Mandir is working on providing essential services with one of them being education. Basic education is offered to children who might otherwise receive none, in all of the 171 Shiksha Kendras (Schools) that run across six blocks in Udaipur District. As these children are often the first generation learners in their households, they are also given the confidence to persist with their studies. Seva Mandir also works with their parents to encourage attendance of their wards in the school.
Friends, I am sharing with you story of Jyoti who is now studying at our education centre.
Jyoti, 9 years of age, belongs to a small village and is currently studying at one of Seva Mandir’s Shiksha Kendra (school) in Kherwara Block. While Jyoti had always wanted to go to school, her parents never let her do so. Her father in particular was against girls receiving education. Jyoti’s father who by profession is a mason got involved in helping build a Shiksha Kendra for the students from his village. During this process, several community members and representatives from Seva Mandir tried to convince him about the importance of education and in particular girl education. Jyoti’s father finally let her daughter enroll in a Shiksha Kendra. Even though she entered the Shiksha Kendra late, the instructors are trying their level best to help her match up to the level of her classmates of the same age. Currently, she is studying at Level C and she hopes she will become an instructor one day to help more girls like her receive education. Jyoti’s father is also supportive of her efforts and has decided that Jyoti will only get married after she is 18 and has completed her education.
Thank you so much Friends for bringing HAPPINESS in the lives of so many children.
